THE ALAMANCE GLEANER. . 1 . ■ ■ « ■OUTWITTING i/UEUTENANT rm PAT OMEN- 53 'G,'*B,b/fHTALYAOmc/t PREFACE. There Is a common Idea that the age of miracles Is past. Perhaps it Is, but If sp, the change must have come about within the past few weeks—after I es caped into Holland. For If nnything Is certain in tills life It Is tills: tills bonk never would have been written but for the succession of miracles set forth In these pages. . Miracles, luck, coincidence, Provi dence—it doesn't matter much what you call It—certalnly § piayed an Impor tant part in the series df hair-breadth escapes In which I figured during my short but eventful appearance in the great drama now being enacted across the seas. Without It, all my efforts and sufferings would •liawe beep quite un availing. No one realizes this better than I do and I want to repeat It right here be cause elsewhere In these pages I mny appear occasionally to overlook or minimize it: without the help of Provi dence I would not be here today. But this same Providence which brought me home safelx, 'despite all the dangers which beset me, may work similar miracles for others, and It Is In the hope of encouraging other poor devils who may find themselves In situ ations as hopeless apparently as mine oftentimes were that this book is writ: ten. When this cruel war Is over—which I trust may be sooner than I expect It to be —I hope I shall have an oppor tunity to revisit the scenes of my ad ventures and to thank in person In an adequate manner every one who ex tended a helping hand to me when I was a wretched fugitive. All of them took great risks In befriending an es caped prisoner and they did It without the slightest hope of reward. At the same time X hope I shall have a chance to pay my compliments to those who endeavored to take advantage of my distress. In the meanwhile, however, I can only express my thanks In this Ineffec tive manner, trusting that In some mysterious way a copy of this book may fall Into the hands of every one who befriended me. I hope particular ly that every good Hollander who played the part of the Good Samari tan to me so bountifully afterfniy es cape from Belgium will see these pages and feel that I am, absolutely sincere when I say that words cannot begin to express my sense of gratitude to the Dutch people. It is needless for me to say how deeply I feel for my fellow ; prlsoners In Germany who were less 'fortunnte than I. Poor, poor fellows —they are the real victims of the war. I hope that every one of them may soon be re stored to that freedom whose value I never fully realized until after I had had to tight so hard to regain It. PAT O'BRIEN. Momence, 111., January 14, 1013. CHAPTER I. The Folly of Despair. Less than nine months ago eighteen officers of the Royal flying cerps, which had been training In Canada, left for England on the Meganlc. If any of them was over twenty-five years of age, he had successfully con cealed the fact, because they don't ac cept older men for the R. F. C. Nine of the squadron were British subjects; the other nine were Ameri cans, who, tired of waiting for their own country to take her place with the allies, had Joined the British colors In Canada. I was one of the latter. We were going to England to earn our "wings"—a qualification which must be won before a member of the K. F. C. Is allowed to hunt the Huns on the western front This was In May, 1017. By August 1, most of us were full fledged pilots, actively engaged at vari ous parts of the line in dally conflict with the enemy. By December 18, every man Jack of us who had met tbe enemy in France, with one exception, had appeared on the casualty list The exception was H. K. Boysen, an American, who at last report was fighting on the Italian front still unscathed. Whether his good fortune has stood him up to this time I don't know, but If it has I would be very much surprised. Of the others, five were killed In ac tion—three Americans, one Canadian, and one Englishman. Three more were in all probability killed In action al though officially they are listed merely as "missing." One of these was an American, one a Canadian, and thf third n Scotchman. Three more, twt of them Americans, were seriousl) wounded. Another, a Canadian, Is a prisoner In Oermdny. I know nottiinf of the others. What happened to me ill narrated It these page*. I r/!tth. Instead. I coult tell the story of each tA my brave coin rades, for not one of them was downed, I am rare, without upholding the beat traditions of the 11. F. C. Unfortunate ly, however, of the eighteen who sailed on the Meganlc last May, I happened to be the first to fall Into the hands of the Huns, and what befell my comrades after that with one ex ception, I know only second hand. The exceptant was the case of poor, brave Paul Itaney—my closest chum— whose last buttle 1 witnessed from my German prison—but that Is • story I phall tell In Its proper place, I In one way, however, I think the story of my own "big adventure" and my miraculous escape may, perhaps, serve a purpose as useful as that of the heroic fate of my less fortunate comrades. Their story. It Is true, might Inspire others to deeds of heroism, but mine; I hope, will convey the equally valuable lesson of the folly of despair. Many were the times In the course of my struggles when ft seemed abso lutely useless to continue. In a hostile country, where discovery meant death, wounded, sick, famished, friendless, hundreds of miles from the nearest neutral territory the frontier of which was so closely guarded that even If I got there It seemed too much to hope that I could ever get through, what was the- use of enduring further agony? And yet hew I am. In the land of liberty—although In a somewhat ©b- ' J&I, H - * HP / 1 W*M( Lieut. Pat O'Brien in the Uniform of the Royal Flying Corp*. scure corner of it—the little town of Momence, 111., where I was born—not very much the worse for wear after all I've been through, and, as I write these words not eight months have passed since my seventeen comrades and I sailed from Canada on the Meganlc. Can It be possible that I was spared to convey a message of hope to others who are destined for similar trials? I am afraid there will be many of them. Tears ago I heard of the epitaph which Is said to have been found on a child's grave: ' "If I was so soon to be done for What, O Lord, was I ever bepun for?" The way It has come to me since I returned from Europe Is: "If, O Lord, I was to be done for. What were my suffering" e'er begun for?" Perhaps the answer lies In the sug gestion I have made. At any rate, If this record of my ad ventures should prove Instrumental In sustaining others who need encourage ment, I shall feel that my suffering* were not in vain. It Is hardly likely that anyone will quite duplicate my experiences, but I haven't the slightest doubt that many will to go through trials equally nerve-racking and suffer disappoint ments Just as disheartening. It would be very far from the mark to imagine that the optimism which I am preaching now so glibly sustained me through all my troubles. On the contrary, I am free to confess that I frequently gave way to despair and often, for hours at a time, felt so de jected and discouraged that I really didn't care what happened to me. In deed, I rather hoped that something would happen to put an end to my misery. But despite all my despondency and hopelessness, the worst never hap pened, and I can't help thinking that my salvntl/.n must have been designed to show the way to other*. CHAPTER 11. I Became a Fighting Scout. I started flying In Chicago In 1912. I was then eighteen years old, but I had had a hankering for the air ever since I can remember. As a youngster I followed the ex ploits of the Wrights with the greatest Interest, although I must confess I sometimes hoped that they wouldn't really conquer the air until I had had • whack at It myself. I got more whacks than I was looking for later on. Needless to say, my parents were very ranch opposed to my risking my life at what was undoubtedly at fftat time one of the most hazardous "pas times" • young fellow could select, and every time I had a smashup or some other mishap I was ordered never to go near an aviation field again. #o I went out to Caltfprala. Tbert GRAH4M, N. 0., THURSDAY, JULY 11, 1918 another fellow and I built our own machine, which we flew in various parts of the state. In the early" part of 1010, when trou ble was brewing In Mexico, I joined the American flying corps. I was sent to San Diego, where the army flying school is located, and spent About eight months there, but as I was anxious to get Into active service and there didn't seem much chance of America ever getting Into the war, I resigned and, crossing over to Canada, joined the Royal Flying corps at Victoria, B. O. I was sent to Camp Borden, Toronto, first to receive instruction and later to Instruct. While a cadet I made the first loop ever made by a cadet In Can ada, and after I had performed the stunt I half expected to be kicked out of the service for It Apparently, how ever, they considered the source and let It go at that Later on I hud tile satisfaction of Introducing the loop as part of the regular course of In struction for cadets In the R. F. C., and I want to say right here that Camp Borden has turned out some of the best fliers that have ever gone to France. In May, 1017, I and seventeen other Canadian fliers left for England on the Meganlc, where we were to qualify for, service In France. Our squadron consisted of nine Americans, C. C. Iloblnson, H. A. Mil ler, F. 8. McClurg, A. A. Allen, 8. B. Garnet, H. K. Boysen, H. A. Smeeton and A. A. Taylor, and myself, and nine Britishers, Paul H. Raney, J. K. Park, C. NelmeS, C. R. Moore, T. L. Atkin son, F. C. Conry, A. Mulr, E. A. L. F. Smith and A. C. Jones. Within a few weeks after our ar rival In England all of us had won our "wings"—the Insignia worn on the left breast by every pilot ou the west ern front. We were all sent to a place In France known as the Tool Pilots Mess. Here men gnther from all the training squadrons In Canada and England and awnlt assignments to the particular squadron of which they are to become members. The Pool«Pllots Mess in sltunted a few miles back of the linen. When ever a pilot Is shot dawn or killed the Pool IMlots Mens is notified to send an other to take hla place. There ore so many casualties every day In the R. P. C. at one point of the front or another that the demand for new pilots la quite active, hut when • fellow Is Itching to get Into the fight as badly as I and my friends were I must confess that we got a little Im patient, although we realized that every time a new man was called It meant that some one else had, .in all probability, been killed, wounded or captured. One morning an order came In for a scout pilot and one of my friends was assigned. I can tell you the rest of us were as envious of him ns If It were the last chance any of us were ever going to have to get to the front. As It was, however, hardly more than three hours had elapsed before an other wire was received at the mess and I was ordered to follow my friend. I afterward learned that as soon as he arrived at the squadron he prevailed upon the commanding offi cer of the squadron to wire for me. At the Pool Pilots' Mess It was the custom of the officers to wear "shorts" —breeches that are about eight Inches long, like the boy scouts weur, leav ing a space of about eight Inches of open country between the top of the puttees and the end of the shorts. The Australians wore them In Ralonlkl and at the Dardanelles. When the order came In for me, 1 had these "shorts" on, aud I didn't have time to change Into other clothes. Indeed, I was in such a sweat to get to the front that If I had been In my pajamas I think I would have gone that way. As It was, it was raining and I threw an overcoat over me, jumped into the machine, and we made record time to the airdrome to which I bad been ordered to report. As I alighted from the automobile my overcoat blew open and displayed my manly form attired In "shorts" In stead of In the regulation flying breeches, and the sight aroused con siderable commotion In camp. "Must be a Yankee 1" 1 overheard one officer say to another as I ap proached. "No one but a Yankee would have the cheek to show up that way, you know I" But they laughed good-naturedly as I came up to them, and welcomed me to the squadron, and I was soon very much at home. My squadron was one of four sta tioned at an airdrome about eighteen miles back of the Ypres line. There were 18 pilots In our squadron, which was a scout squadron, scout machines carrying but one man. A scout, sometimes called a fighting scout, has no bomb dropping or recon noltering to do. His duty la Just to light, or, as the order was given to me, "You are expected to pick lights and not wait until they come to you!" When bomb droppers go out over the lines In the daytime a scout squad ron usually convoys them. The bomb droppers fly at about twelve thousand feet, and scoots a thousand feet or ao above them. If at any time they should be at tacked, It la Cie doty of tbe acoata to dire down and carry on the flght, the order* of the bomb droppers being to go on dropping bomb* and not to flght unless they have fo. There la aeldom a time that machines go oat over the line* on this work In the daytime that they are not attacked at some time or other, and to the scoots usually have plenty of work to do. In addition to these attacks, however, the squadron Is Invariably under constant bombard ment from the ground, but that doesn't worry u* very much, a* we know pret ty well how to avoid being Mt from that quarter. On my first flight, after joining the squadron, I was taken out over the line* to get a look at things, map oat my location in caae I waa ever lost, locate the forests, lakes afld other landmarka and get tbe general lay of tbe land. One thing that was Impressed upon me very emphatically w*s the location of tbe hospitals, so that In caae I waa ever wounded and bad tbe strength to pick my landing I wuld land M pw mUBm k^jji w jVmu jp SUa a I K.' w* A I PH| «bi O'Brien Standing Beside the First Machine In Which He Baw Active Service* as possible to a hospftal. AIT these things a new pilot goes through dur ing the first two or three days after joining a squadron. Our regular routine was two flights a day, each of two hours' duration. After doing our regular patrol, It was onr privilege to go off on our own hook If we wished, before going back to the squadron. I soon found out that my squadron was some hot squadron, our flyers be ing almost always assigned to special duty work, such as shooting up trenches at a height of fifty feet from the ground. I received my baptism Into this kind of work the third time I went out over the lines, and I would recommend It to anyone who Is hankering for excite ment. Tou are not only apt to be at tacked by hostile aircraft from above, but you are swept by machine-gun fire .from below. I have seen some of our machines come back from this work sometimes so riddled with bullets that I wondered how they ever held to gether. Before we started out on one of these jobs, we were mighty careful to see that our motors were In perfect condition, because they told us the "war bread was bad In Germany." One morning, shortly after I joined the squadron, three of us started over the line of our own accord. We soon observed four enemy macMnes, two seaters, coming toward us. This type of machine Is used by the Huns for artillery work nnd bomb dropping, ami we knew they were on mischief bent. Each machine had a machine gun In front, worked by the pilot, and the ob server also hnd a gun with which he could spray all around. When we first noticed the Huns, our machines were about six miles back ef the German lines and we were lying high up In the sky, keeping the Sun behind us, so that the enemy could not see us. We picked out three of the machine* and dove down on them. I went right by the man I picked for my*elf and hIH observer In the rear seat kept pumping at me to beat the band. Not one of my shot* took effect a* I went right down under him, but I turned and gave film another burst of bullets, and down ho went In a spinning none dive, one of his wings going one way and one another. AM I saw him crash to the ground I knew that 1 had got my Brut hostile aircraft. ¥ie of my com rade* was equally successful, but the other two German machine* got away. We chased them track until things got too hot for us by reason of the api»car ance of other German machines, and then we called It a day. This experience whetted my appetite for more of the same kind, and I did not have long to wait. It mojr he well to explain here Just what b spinning nose henl I*. A few yearn ago the spinning none (live KM considered one of lIM Mt dangerous thing* a pilot could attempt, and many men were killed getting Into this Mpln and not knowing how to come oat of It. In fact, lota of pilots thought that when once you got Into a aplnnlng none dive thoro wa» no way of coming oat of It. It I* now axed, however. In actual flying. The machine* that are used In France are controlled In two waya, both by hands and feet, the feet working the yoke or rudder bar which control* the rudder; that ateer* the machine. The lateral control*, fore and aft, which cnone the ma chine to line or lower, are controlled by a contrivance called a "joy atlck." If, when flying In the air, a pilot abould relea*e hi* bold on thl* nil ok. It will gradually come toward the pilot. In that poxltlon the machine will begin to climb. 80 If a pilot I* *hot and lone* control of thl* "Joy atlck," hi* machine begin* to ascend. and cllmba until tbe angle formed be comes too great for it to continue or the motor to pull the plane; for a fraction of a second It stop*, and the motor then being the heaviest, It causes the nose of the machine to fall forward, pitching down at a terrific rate of speed and spinning at the tune time. U the motov la atUl run- fling, It imturiilly Increases the speed much mire than It would If the mo tor were shut off, and there Is great danger that the wings will double up, Causing the machine to break apart Although spins uro mude with the motor on, you are dropping like a bull being dropped out of the sky and the velocity Increuses with the power of the motor. This spinning nose dive has been frequently used In "stuut" flying in recent years, but Is now put to prac tical use by pilot* 1 In getting away from hostile machines, for when a mun Is spinning it Is almost Impos sible to hit him, and the man making the attack Invariably thinks his en emy is going down to certain death In the spin. Tills Is all right, when a man Is over his own territory, because he can right his machine nnd come out of It; but If It happens over German territory, the Huns would only follow him down, and when he came out of the spin they would be above him. having all the advantage, and would shoot him down with ease. It Is a good way of getting down Into a cloud, and Is used very often by both sides, but It requires skill and cour age by the pilot making It If he ever expects to come out alive. A spin being made by a pilot Intentionally looks exactly like a spin thut Is made by a machine actually being shot down, so one never knows whether It Is forced or Intentlonol until the pilot either rights his machine and coines out of It, or crashes to the ground. Another dive similar to this one Is known as Just the plain dive. As sume, for Instance, that a pilot flying at a height of several thousand feet Is shot, loses control of Ills machine, and the nose of the plane starts down with the motor full on. He Is going at a tremendous speed and In many Instances is going so straight and awlftly that the speed Is 100 great for the machine, because It was never constructed to withstand the enor mous pressure forced agiilnst the wings, and they consequently crumple up. If, too, In fin attempt to straighten the machine, the elevators should be come affected, as often happens In frylug to bring a machine out of a dive, the strain Is again too great on the wings, and there Is the same dis astrous result Oftentimes, when the patrol tank Is punctured by a tracer bullet from another machine In the air, the plane that Is hit catches on Are and either gets Into a spin or a straight dive and heads f»r the earth, hundreds of miles an hour, a mass of (lame, looking like a brilliant comet In the sky. The spinning noae dive Is used to grenler advantage by the Herman* than by our own pilots fur tbe reason that when a fight gel* too hot for the (ieruinn, lie will put his inaiilne in a spin, and 11s the chances lire nine oat of ten that we are fighting over Oertnan territory, he elrnply spins down out of our range, straighten* out before he reaches the ground, and get* on home to his airdrome. It Is uncles* to follow him down Inside the German lines, for you would In all probability be shot down before you can attain snfllctcnt altitude to no** the line again. It often happens tlmt a pilot will be chiming another machine when suddenly he nee* ft start to spin. I'er hap* they are fifteen or eighteen thou sand fejt In the air, and the hostile machine spins down for thousands of feet. lie thlnka he lias hit the other machine and goes home happy that he has brought down another Hun. He report* the occurrence to the squadron, telling liow he shot down hi* enemy; but when the rest of the squadron come In with their report, or some artillery observation balloon ■ends In a report. It develops that when a few hundred feet from the ground the supposed dead man In ttie apln has come out of the spin and gone merrily on his way for his air drome. To be continued. NEW DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE. ; I UNCER SHADOW OF WASHING TON WILSON SPEAKS FOR WORLD FREEDOM. CONCISECGNDITIONS OF PEACE Reign of Law Based Upon Right and the Organlsd Opinion of Mankind. Washington.—From the shadow of Washington's tomb. President Wilson offered Amerlcals Declaration of Independence to the people ot the world, with a pledge that the Un4ted States and Its allies will not sheathe the sword In the war against the cen tral powers until there Is settled "once for all" (or tlfb world what was settled for America In 1776. Foreign-born citizens of the United States of 33 r ationalltles who had placed wreaths of palms on the tomb in of fealty to the principles laid down by the fathor of this coun try, cried their approval of his words In many languages nnd then stood with reverently bared heads while the voice of John McCormack soared over the hallowed ground In the notes of the "Star-Bpangled Banner." "Washington and his associates, like the barons at Runnymede, spoke and acted, not for a class, but for a people," the President said. "It has been left for us to see to it that it shall be understood that they spoke and acted, not for a single person only, but for all mankind. "These are the ends for which the associated peoples of the world are fighting and which must be conced ed them before there can be peace: "I.—The destruction of every arbi trary power anywhere that can sep arately, secretly, and of Its single choice disturb the peace of the world; or, it It cannot be presently destroyed, at the least Its reduction to virtual Impotence. "ll.—The settlen.ent of every ques tion, whether of territory, of sover eignty, of economic srrangement, or of political relationship, upon the ba sil of the free acceptance of that set tlement by the people Immediately concerned, and not upon the basis of the material Interest or advantage of any other nation or people which mar desire a different settlement for the sake of its own eiterlor Influence or mastery. "lll.—The consent of all nations to be governed Jn their conduct towards each other by the same principles ot honor and o£ respect for the common law of civilized society that govern the Individual citizens of all modern statds In their relstlons with one snother; to the end that all promises and cov enants may be sacredly observed, no private plots or conspiracies hstched, no selfish Inftrles wrought with Impu nity, and a mutual trust established upon the handsome foundation of a mutual respect for right. "IV.—The estsbllshment of an or ganization of peace which shall make It certain that the combined power of free nations will check everyy inva sion of right and serve to make peace and Justice the more secure by afford ing a definite tribunal of opinion to which all must submit and by which every International readjustment that cannot be amicably agreed upon by the people directly concerned shall be sanctioned. "These great objects can be put Into a single sentence. What we seek is the reign of la#r based upon the con sent of the governed and sustained by the organized opinion of mankind."
